  • Call for Clay Artists - The Great Divide
    September 9, 2019
    Deadline: November 1

    The Morean Arts Center in downtown St. Petersburg invites visual artists working primarily in clay to submit work for the exhibition ‘The Great Divide’. The thematic aspect of selected works will explore aesthetic, narrative, political or structural divides/divisions.

    The exhibit runs December 14 - January 31 at the Morean Gallery.

    Works will explore aesthetic, narrative, political or structural divides and divisions. At the same that our world becomes smaller due to the internet and transportation, the differences between people appear to be becoming greater. Who really knows if this is true?

    At the same time, postmodernism has made possible fractured aesthetics, varying materials juxtaposing, the exciting invention of new forms with diverse application, and a seemingly odd abstraction of surfaces, relationships and casting away of what for centuries has been an assumed standard for high craftsmanship.

    For this exhibition, there are no limitations to the conceptual or experimental. Both utilitarian and sculptural works are eligible.

    Jury and Curator: Bruce Dehnert

    Details and an online application can be found here.

  • Funding Futures Award Opportunity Opens for After School Arts Programs Starting Fall 2019
    August 28, 2019

    Talented students who aspire to be musicians, actors, dancers or visual artists are often faced with socioeconomic disadvantages that prevent many from pursuing an artistic field.

    SPAA's Funding Futures program is dedicated to helping students nurture their creative interests and develop their expressive talent by providing funding to eligible students and connecting them to local summer arts camps and now after school arts programs.

    Since its launch in April 2017, SPAA has awarded over $25,000 to 47 students ages 10 to 17, providing them access to dance, music, jazz, voice, theater, digital arts, photography, cinematic arts or visual arts, even point shoes for a young ballerina.

    The Funding Futures Student Award program is designed to identify and encourage talented disadvantaged emerging artists in Pinellas County seeking St. Petersburg programs. The program is open to all talented artists regardless of ethnic, social or economic background, or ability/disability.

    Studies state that art experiences especially help low-income and at-risk youth. Art students on free or reduced lunch were four times more likely to have high academic achievement and three times more likely to have high attendance. They were also more likely than their peers to attend and do well in college, build careers, volunteer in the community and vote.

    Funds may be used for

    • Tuition for after school or summer arts programs
    • Musical instruments rental, purchase or repair
    • Equipment or supplies for a special artistic project
    • Individual instruction or master class tuition

    For application information, email tracy@stpeteartsalliance.org.

    ACA Soundscape Field Station will be the first of its kind in the United States dedicated to the emerging field of soundscape ecology, the study of sounds in the environment.

    The program begins November 2019 with a team of soundscape ecology artists from Wild Sanctuary, the internationally acclaimed soundscape field research and sound arts group founded by Dr. Bernie Krause (author of The Great Animal Orchestra: Finding the Origins of Music in the World's Wild Places). Dr. Krause's sound art programs have been installed in museums around the world, including the Smithsonian Institution, American Museum of Natural History, Horniman (London), and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain (Paris). Dr. Krause is joined by team member Jack Hines, who will use ACA’s Soundscape Field Station residency to create sound art from the soundscape of Canaveral National Seashore, and conduct field activities for the community.

    The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Emergency Grant program is intended to provide interim financial assistance to qualified painters, printmakers and sculptors whose needs are the result of an unforeseen, catastrophic incident and who lack the resources to meet that situation.

    Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need. The maximum amount of this grant is $15,000; an award of $5,000 is typical.

    To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking.

  • Funding for Projects on the Teaching Power of the Arts
    June 21, 2019
    The Cornelia T. Bailey Foundation is accepting applications for its Philanthropic Arts (“P/Arts”) Program.

    In its inaugural year, the program seeks to promote the teaching power of the arts and invites applicants from Florida, New York, New England or the District of Columbia who have a good idea for how the arts and education can be combined to create a more immersive and engaging atmosphere for learners.

    The program’s primary goals are to enhance or transform outdated school curricula; motivate and engage children, students and alternative learners; deepen professional development for teachers, professors and childcare workers; create linkages between school and home; encourage evidence-based art-based instruction; and help close the achievement gap.

    Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded in support of programs dedicated to strengthening and rebuilding visual and performing arts programs, as well as ideas that create or expand on existing art programs.

    Programs or initiatives should be based on the use of the arts and arts education to teach core academics in a qualified education program within a public school, private school, university or public charitable organization.

    The foundation is also interested in promoting programs and ideas where the arts are being used in early childhood education, in university and community colleges, and in the engagement of alternative learners. Proposed or existing programs must impact at least thirty children or students within the first six months of implementation and no fewer than sixty by the end of the first year.

    Grant decisions for the program will be made on a monthly rolling basis until the final deadline of October 31, 2019.

    Complete program guidelines and application instructions can be found at ctbfoundation.org/parts-program.

  • Open Call for Singers - One City Chorus
    September 21, 2018
    St. Petersburg's award-winning One City Chorus was founded with the belief that singing in a group builds community and leads to better understanding.

    We encourage people of all races, cultures, creeds and communities to sing with us. Everyone is welcome - we have no auditions.

    We have a great season planned. We’ll once again be singing songs with themes about social justice, civil rights, and diversity – songs like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”, Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground”, “Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, the Doobie Brothers’ “Takin’ It to the Streets”, Neil Diamond’s “America”, U2’s “In the Name of Love” and other wonderful songs by less-widely-known artists.

    We’ll be singing a concert in the circular Sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Clearwater on December 1, and we’ll be singing again at St. Pete’s First Night celebrations on December 31 at the United Methodist Church. On February 17 is our annual concert at the Palladium Theater.

    Rehearsals are every Monday at 7 p.m. at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American History Museum –2240 9th Ave. S. in St. Petersburg.

    We ask that our singers contribute $20/year to help defray some of our costs. We sing all of our songs “off-book” without sheet music and we have rehearsal recordings of all the parts online. This helps folks who don’t read music well to learn their parts, and it also helps people who have joined us later in the year to catch up.

    For more information, visit our website at onecitychorus.org.
